Wedding - Flower Girl Dresses

I have a few more details I want to document about our wedding day, so I hope you'll bear with me through just a few more wedding related posts.

I had a hard time trying to find cute yet affordable flower girl dresses so decided to make them myself. I think colored flower girl dresses are cuter than the traditional white flower girl dress. Also, I selfishly wanted to be the only one wearing white.

I found the perfect fabric at G Street fabrics - a light, but rich purple dupioni silk and used Simplicity 4647 for the pattern. The dupioni was very easy to work with, and the pattern went together quickly.

For the sash, I used purple ribbon that matched the color of the bridesmaid dresses (which were cocktail dresses from Nordstrom, by the way). I pinned the sash with a silk flower I found at Joann's.

I seriously love how cute the dresses turned out. I was afraid the girls wouldn't like them, but they LOVED them too. They danced happily in them all night long!
